For this assignment students will be assessed as a team, which means each group member will normally receive the same mark. If one group member feels that the other member is not contributing, the lecturer should be informed and a group meeting held to produce a solution. NO complaints about group operation will be considered after the assignment has been handed in.
Design the beams and size up the columns to support the floor slab as shown on Figure 1 to AS3600-2009. The building is to be used as a commercial office and is located at Maroubra in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. The buildings fire rating and other durability considerations must comply with local ordinances.
The design should consider flexure, shear and deflections. The supporting columns may be treated as slender and act as simple supports. Fully detail your design and provide the contractor an indication of the tonnage of steel in your design. At the front of your assignment provide drawings of your design (in sufficient detail and clarity that the beams
and columns can be constructed). Take f’c = 32 MPa, fsy = 500 MPa, the slab thickness = 250 mm. You are to make all beams equal in total depth. Beam B2 is a continuous over Column C2.
The design live loading is to be taken as appropriate for the buildings designated use.
All drawing and calculations must be able to be read and marked without pulling your assignment apart. References to Australian Standards etc are to be placed in a separate column on the right hand side of your report.
